They have the inside knowledge and the expertise about everything beauty so they are our first stop to find out what we should be packing for our weekend getaways, family holidays and once-in-a-lifetime trips abroad.

The Jarrolds Beauty Buyers share their top five which should be taking pride of place in your suitcase. 

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, £38

This one is a classic…winner of multiple awards and for good reason, the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser from NARS is one which forever be in our summer make-up bags. With just the right amount of coverage for showing that holiday glow, it also includes SPF30 making it hardworking when you only want to think about all the rest and relaxation that putting your Out of Office on should mean. 

With all the dips in the sea and added exposure to the sun, your skin can get thirsty and the formula of this product includes lush, naturally derived botanicals and ingredients to help hydrate and refresh.

The Grown Alchemist philosophy of skincare is all around ensuring a holistic scientific approach and their sunscreen is no different. The lightweight formula includes features innovative ultra-sheer natural Zinc Oxide to provide broad spectrum protection from damaging UVA (premature aging) and UVB (sunburn) rays. 

A little of this goes along way so no need to overapply and find yourselfrunning out half way through your holiday. It sinks beautifully into the skin, leaving a non-greasy glow finish, perfect for that rested look while you are on holiday.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Big Lip Plumgasm, £27

All beauty girls know when Charlotte Tilbury have a new release in their Pillowtalk wardrobe, it is best to run, don’t walk to your nearest counter to try the soon-to-be-viral item. With this in mind, we have fallen a little (okay, a lot) in love with the new lip gloss from Charlotte and to utter the words of the queen herself, it simply is AMAZING. Coming in two shades, fair/medium and medium/deep, you shouldn’t depart for the airport without it. 

We love the precision application diamond tip which glides on easily while the tingling sensation can be felt, but not uncomfortably, from the first wear. Plus its not all pretty packaging, the formula includes hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, meaning it includes all the benefits of a balm and with continued use, your lips will become smoother and fuller.

TOM FORD Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil 45ml, £45

When the product description says ‘inspired by private islands and endless summers’, you can say our interest is piqued and at Jarrolds, we have to say that this product does not disappoint. Perfect to add that luxury you need to your getaway, this is one hardworking item you cannot leave behind. 

Just massage into dry or damp skin to discover the intoxicating fragrance of warm amber sandalwood and creamy white florals while enjoying the non-greasy summer shimmer provided by the shimmers of gold which will compliment your lightly tanned skin perfectly. With all that, it also provides hydration which your skin will be tahnking you for. Definitely one for the carryon.
